Tyrel was asked to come in and help his Uncle Matt close the doors at High Gear back in 2020. Once COVID hit, Matt decided to stay open a little longer, though his heart was still striving to be with his mission, Handlebars of Hope. Long story short, in May of 2022 Ty was in position to take over the shop with the help of Shawn Jones – our partner out of Salina, KS (check out BikeTek if you’re ever in their area!), so that Matt could move down to the border of Mexico to pursue HoH full-time! His wife, Lacie, has been along for the whole ride as his right hand. Together, and with the help of Shawn, they have been working hard as ever to continue to bring the service you have come to expect from High Gear.
